Even Cowgirls Get the Blues & My Own Private Idaho. Gus Van Sant.

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues & My Own Private Idaho

London: Faber and Faber, 1993; [1998]. 2nd Printing. Octavo, publisher's photo-illustrated wraps.

Screenplays for two films by Van Sant, retaining scenes and details altered during the course of production, and reproduced here as facsimiles, rather than transcriptions, of the original typescripts: "We chose to publish them this way as opposed to printing a transcript of the finished movie so that one could better see the process of change that a project goes through before it reaches the audience....They are unconventional enough to have turned off a lot of people in the 'business' simply because those people were in the 'business' of conformity, as is most of Hollywood. I am not. To me this is extremely significant" (from the foreword). With an interview with film critic Graham Fuller, a filmography, and several black-and-white production stills. While the copyright page indicates this is the 2nd printing of this paperback original, first issued in 1993, an advertisement in the rear for the Faber and Faber edition of Van Sant's novel Pink suggests it likely dates to 1998, when that work was first published. Spine slightly creased, with light rubbing to spine-ends. Near fine. Item #91
